Ageing, stress and exposure to sunlight make the skin vulnerable to the marks of passing time. The skin starts to thin and lose elasticity, and lines gradually become more apparent.
- Dermal fillers (hyaluronic acid injections) can be used to offset natural hyaluronic acid loss, correct lines or restore facial volume. The hyaluronic acid molecule is able to absorb 1,000 times its volume in water. You can get a fresh and younger look and also reshape your lips with dermal fillers without surgery.
- Botulinum toxin (often known as Botox) is known to smooth expression lines especially on the forehead, around the eyes (crows feet) and frown lines (the ‘eleven lines’). It is a protein that acts on the neuro-muscuclar junction. If it’s not injected properly, you may get a frozen face. The secret lies in the dosage and the accuracy of the injections. A good treatment should not be noticeable except for the professionnal eye. Botulinum toxin is a muscle relaxant ; it reduces the involuntary contraction of the injected muscles and then reduces the appearance of wrinkles and gives a fresher look.
